Thanks to VIVO

We are massive supporters of the VIVO project and were Platinum sponsors of the Annual VIVO Conference this year. As expected it was a great event and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the delegates and hope to see you at another event soon.

We were very lucky to have Mike Conlon, the principal investigator of the VIVO project, come and talk to us at our user conference earlier this year. It is exciting to see how VIVO has created a platform for research discovery with a growing world community of collaborators, scientists, implementers and developers. With all the excitement around VIVO, we are confident its going to be great working with them in the future.

More about VIVO

The VIVO project was initially started in Cornell as an open source web application to collate research and scholarship information within an institution and then provide academics with an institutional profile.

Head over to VIVO to get all the details.

The automatic search features are a bonus. I really like the way the new entries arrive automatically, and all I have to do is respond to the prompt to approve them. Navigation in the new release is intuitive and friendly. Linking directly to DOIs and full text is convenient and makes it easy to access and share my own research.

Elements elegantly connected our multi-university system providing a
single source of truth throughout OIEx.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
